Mass erosion in Himalayas and its control

, : Mass erosion in Himalayas and its control. Proceedings of

In the recent past, there has been a rapid increase in developmental activities leading to land degradation in the form of land slides, mine spoils and dry & boundary torrents. These degradation problems can be solved by adopting protective, studying engineering and vegetative measures. The results of an experimental study clearly show a reduction in runoff and soil loss and increased dry weather flow.

To test this assumption in a tectonically active landscape, a network...
